Ultimate Checklist: 2008 UD A Piece of History

I'll kick off the 2008 Upper Deck sets with "A Piece of History," which, as far as I can tell from the Granderson cards in the set, is a very odd title of a release, as the cards don't relay anything particularly historic, and lack the "pieces" from those non-existent historic moments. Perhaps 2008 Upper Deck "Cards" would have been more appropriate. Full Disclosure: I don't have any of these cards so my judgement of them is highly impaired. Still, one was revealed on A Pack A Day back in July. Here it is for your convenience. That particular card is the famed, historic #GO Curtis Granderson/Magglio Ordonez "Cut from the Same Cloth" insert card, #/799. It is the card upon which a number of parallels are based. Those parallels include:

Silver #/149
Red #/99
Pewter #/75
Blue #/25

Oh, and an actual piece of history, perhaps? There is a dual jersey version, #/99 in which the jersey pieces fill up the otherwise empty D's that are front and center of the card.

Again, I don't have any of these cards, but as far as 2008 cards go, this one seems like a pretty "meh" offering.


  1. I'll go further than "meh." This was my least favorite set of '08. Too bad more is coming in '09.

  2. I pulled that. You can have it if you want, but I have to find it first.

  3. dayf, that would be great! If you'd prefer to just put it aside, maybe we can work out a larger trade in the future and save on all those pesky stamps.
